Too Long a Soldier.

For those that don't get why I am such a Benatar fan since I was a teenager, its her range and emotion. Most artists today do not have the pipes to do what she does even as she approaches age 60. She fudges a few notes here and there but it is quite rare. She has preserved her voice well.

In honor of veterans day, I have to share one of her most overlooked songs. Her range and raw emotion is quite evident at 4 minutes 30 seconds till about 5 minutes into this song. The overall song is powerful but how she sings just a portion of the star spangled banner gives me goosebumps each time I listen to this song. I wish I could hear her sing it fully.

I salute all veterans in my best way, that being a powerful emotion packed song from my favorite artist.
